Santa Clarita Valley History In Pictures
Tomorrow's History Today
The following exclusive interviews, with more to come, are presented in recognition of the members of the 2004 Mars Exploration Rover team who live in the Santa Clarita Valley — including, among others, Project Manager Richard Cook; Jennifer Trosper, Spirit Surface Mission Manager; Matt Wallace, Opportunity Surface Mission Manager; Wayne Lee, Chief Engineer for Entry, Descent and Landing; Glenn Reeves, Software Chief Engineer; Barry Goldstein, Deputy Flight System Manager; Denise Hollert, Entry Capsule Engineer; and Rich Petras, Spirit Senior Engineer.
UPDATE: As the wildly successful Mars Exploration Rovers continue to outlast their design life, we additionally recognize the SCV-resident team members and leaders of other NASA/JPL Mars programs, such as the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, Phoenix Lander (2008) and beyond.
